Former Leicester City midfielder Robbie Savage has stated
that Brendan Rodgers would be the perfect man to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
and guide Manchester United back to the top.
The Red Devils have endured their worst start to the Premier
League ever since the competition and with only two wins in eight games so far,
things are looking awful for Manchester United. The latest team that humiliated
the fallen English giants were Newcastle United as the Magpies earned a 1-0 win
over the red half of Manchester on Sunday at St James’ Park.
With just nine points in eight games in England’s top flight, United are 15 points behind leaders Liverpool and the gap will only get bigger as the season progresses. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side has lacked a proper goalscorer after they decided to offload Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez to Inter Milan in the summer transfer window.
United have now managed to score only five goals in their last seven games failing to muster up more than one goal in a game ever since the opening day win over Chelsea. With the club in dire straits, Norwegian boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has come under scrutiny with his job and the 46-year-old could be axed if he does not turn the ship around.
Former Welsh star Robbie Savage has admitted that United should look to replace Solskjaer with Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers. Rodgers left Celtic towards the end of last season and tied up with the Foxes and the Northern Irishman has transformed Leicester into a realistic top-four team.
Leicester currently sits in fourth place on the table and Rogers has done quite an incredible job in a short period of time. And Savage is convinced that the 46-year-old is the ideal candidate to replace Solskjaer at the Theatre of Dreams because he can add stability as well as guide them back to the top, “Brendan Rodgers is leading Leicester City back into the Champions League – and he is a future United manager Don’t get me wrong: When I say Rodgers is destined for high office at United, I am not saying Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should be sacked. I am not in favor of football’s hiring-and-firing culture, and Solskjaer deserves time. But I’ve been so impressed by the job Rodgers has done since he took over at the King Power eight months ago that I’m convinced Leicester can finish in the top four.”
Rodgers guided Swansea City into the Premier League back in
2011 and then coached Merseyside giants Liverpool for three and a half seasons
helping them to a 2nd place finish in the Premier League in the
Rodgers is doing a great job with Leicester City at the moment but it would take him some time to build a top team. Once he does win a title with Leicester only then should Manchester United look to appoint the Northern Ireland manager.
